AIKEN, S.C, Sept. 18, 2017 -- Best Lawyers®, the only purely peer-review™ guide to the legal profession, is currently accepting nominations for the 25th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America.
Nominations can be submitted by the general public, clients, other practicing attorneys, and marketing teams. We only ask that lawyers not nominate themselves. All lawyers included in the previous edition of The Best Lawyers in America are automatically nominated in their listed practice areas for the 25th Edition.
After nominations are complete, attorneys are divided by geographic region and practice area. They are evaluated by their peers on the basis of professional expertise and undergo an authentication review to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing with their local bar associations.
"Nominating qualified attorneys is the first step in acknowledging the accomplishments of exceptional legal professionals," said Best Lawyers CEO Steven Naifeh.
Nominees are recommended to be in practice for at least 10 years. It is also in the nominator's best interest to only submit nominations in practice areas in which the attorney specializes.
The redesigned Best Lawyers website permits the public to easily enter information for the eligible attorney using the online nomination form. The nomination period ends December 1, 2017.
